Now, I still like the idea of private accounts instead of sending the money to Washington to be abused. I firmly believe that an individual can better manage his or her own funds through a properly designed program that cannot be abused by the investor nor by the investor's fund manager. Surely, letting compound interest work for us is preferable to trusting the government to do the job...with them involved, we pay anyway and get back less for ourselves.

I agree. I hate to see my SS money going into a endless pit that I may never see again.
